GyroQ 1.9.3 pre-release

[Note: Gyronix is implementing some improvements in how they store tag information in the GyroQ.ini file. This may require you to reinstall some tags that rely on inline macros if you install the pre-release version 1.9.3. If you get an error, just go to the tag library and paste fresh packed-text into the GyroQ input box.]

If you use GyroQ frequently to capture text using the default “Information (with clipboard)” tag or the MindReader “q” tag, you should consider updating to the new pre-release version of GyroQ 1.9.3.

While using MindReader to “process” through several hundred messages accumulated over a recent vacation week, I stumbled upon a non-breaking space combination in an Outlook rich-text email that GyroQ 1.9.2 missed and caused the dequeuing process to break. This version fixes that problem and also adds the ability to handle larger combined “packed text” files.

If you ever find yourself with a dequeuing problem like this, you can inspect the text files in the “My Maps\GyroQ” directory using notepad. There are a lot of escape codes there in place of hard returns and spaces, but you should be able to infer any great ideas you had “emptied out of your head”. You can then use “Discard Queue” command to reset GyroQ.

While you are in install-mode, you should also make sure you are up to date on MindManager (6.2.399) and ResultsManager (2.7.7) and review other setup tips.

    You may notice the GyroQ window popping up when you hit the ? key when using one of the pre-release versions. To fix the problem, click right on the gyroQ icon in the system tray, choose “options”, “change text grab hot key”, and enter ^+g (control-shift-G) instead of ?.
